Explanation of the Book:

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1793 edition. Excerpt: ... error in the altitude of an object near the meridian may produce a considerable error in the apparent time; and because the altitude of a star cannot always be so accurately observed as is necessary for establishing the apparent time; nor can the time, inferred from the Moon's altitude, be depended on, unless its declination and right ascension are reduced to the time of observation, by applying the equation of second difference--it therefore seems most eligible to use the Sun for this purpose. Hence, if this object is too near the meridian at the time of observation of the distance, it becomes necessary to observe its altitude, when in a more proper situation, either previous, or subsequent thereto. Hence the error of the watch will be known, which being applied to the time of observation of the distance, will give the apparent time of observation, agreeable to the meridian for which this error was determined. Or, if the change of longitude in time, between the meridians of the places where the observations were made for ascertaining the time and longitude, be applied to the above found apparent time, by addition or subtraction, according as the ship's course made good has been in the eastern or western quarter, the apparent time will hence be known, for the meridian of the place where the observations were made for determining the longitude. If the watch gains or loses considerably, allowance must be made for its rate in the above interval. October 17, 1786, in latitude 360 12' S. and longitude, by account, 480 15'W. the following observations were taken in order to determine the error of the watch, the height of the eye being 17 feet. Time Towards noon, the following observations were made, the height of the eye being 16 feet....
